No one likes a thief who gets away with stolen items and especially not 8 year old Landon Crabtree. After a burglar broke into his family’s house to get away with the family’s iPad and a few other items, the family got insurance money for the lost goods. But Landon wasn’t going to stand for someone else having his iPad and used Apple’s free Find my iPhone to recover the iPad. However, that’s not the only thing police found.
Using the address found with Find my iPhone, police were lead to a hotel where the thief stashed his loot. Along with Landon’s iPad, they found $350,000 worth of items, from a string of roughly 100 burglaries.
It’s awesome to see this clever little 8 year old save the day, but I think the moral of the story here is that we should all have Find my iPhone setup/installed. Check out the interview with Landon and his family over at MSNBC.
